Will You See Dolphins on a Fort Myers Sunset Cruise?

Dolphins in the sunset

A must-do attraction while staying with Sun Palace is a Fort Myers sunset cruise. There is nothing like being out on the open ocean with the clear waters and sea breezes running past. However, the experience is heightened when you go out during the evening. As the sun sets over the ocean, you will get the most spectacular views of the magnificent melting sky from on board a Fort Myers sunset cruise boat. Along with the sunset views, you will most likely also get a glimpse of a friendly dolphin or maybe even a whole pod! Here are some Fort Myers sunset cruises to embark upon during your vacation.

Who to Choose for Your Fort Myers Sunset Cruise
